One frustrated motorist who got out of his vehicle to move traffic cones to help vehicles get by on Croston Road said: “There are queues everywhere and people are getting annoyed and impatient especially at the crossroads and are going through red lights and just completely blocking the road for everyone else. It’s chaos.

“There’s also roadworks in parts with temporary traffic lights and there’s not even any work being carried out. There’s no police or anyone controlling the traffic. Garstang is like a car park right now. I ended up having to get out the car and moving some traffic cones slightly so that we could get through. People in cars nearby were thanking me and saying well done. I don’t even know why the cones were there – it’s just stupid.”

A second motorist said she had to abandon plans to get her daughter to work due to the delays. Helen Smith said: “I spent over 2 hours trying to get my daughter to work. We had to abandon, it’s absolutely shocking.”
